Lyrics going around in my head

Pigs (Three Different Ones)

Big man, pig man, ha ha charade you are.
You well heeled big wheel, ha ha charade you are.
And when your hand is on your heart,
You’re nearly a good laugh,
Almost a joker,
With your head down in the pig bin,
Saying “Keep on digging.” (my note – or should that be “Keep on Drilling” or “Drill Baby Drill”)
Pig stain on your fat chin.
What do you hope to find.
When you’re down in the pig mine.
You’re nearly a laugh,
You’re nearly a laugh
But you’re really a cry.


Here’s a Wiki on Animals by Pink Floyd – very interesting.

laugh or cry… much to think about…
